On the basis of the information determined by the dentist, a patient-individual digital full denture is created in several working steps using the BDCreator®. The handling of the BDCreator® is easy to learn due to the logical and clear user interface. Since the software works with the standard .stl file format, it is easy to integrate into the existing dental laboratory workflow. The selection and automatic alignment of the row of teeth is based on the information of the position of the occlusal plane and the center of the face obtained with the aid of the BDKEY® Set on the patient.

Individual adaptation of these parameters is possible at any time during construction.

The model analysis according to Gerber helps the user in the selection of the appropriate tooth arch width. The visualisation of the facial plane support the user in the control of the design regarding the statics and position of the tooth rows in the interalveolar space. Now the digitally constructed full denture is ready for transfer to a suitable CAM module.


System requirements:
at least 1 GHZ processor / Recommended: 2.4 GHZ
at least 4-GB RAM (internal memory) / Recommended 16-GB
at least 500 MB free disk space for installation
Windows 7 or 8
Architecture: 64-Bit
internet access, CD ROM drive
Graphic card or -chip with min. 512 MB RAM

In order to ensure proper function of BDCreator®, only programs should be installed on the PC used which are released for the dental fi eld and no non-dental software. Such programs may lead to faults and malfunctions, whereby Merz Dental GmbH assumes no liability for the resulting damage.

CAM processing

After CAD creation of the full dentures in BDCreator®, the data is transferred to an appropriate CAM module in an .stl file format for a partly automated calculation of the milling paths.

An interface has been defined by Merz Dental for this purpose, which different milling machine manufacturers have on hand. To define the milling strategy for processing the BDLoad® in a 3+2-axis milling procedure or 5-axis simultaneous milling procedure, it is advisable to contact the machine manufacturer.
